host: do you take medicare patients? caller: no, i don't. host: that is one of the issues brought up by some of our callers. that this will lead to less doctors taking less medicaid patients. caller: medicare, medicaid. yes, that is true. some of my colleagues have stopped taking those patients. really, the fundamental problem here is that the patients that were being dropped, basically, doctors services are not being paid for. you have maybe -- you can do an ekg, and it is $500 for a regular patient, i'm just giving an example. a medcade patient, maybe you get paid, i don't know, $80. it's still a business.
